We take our two dogs on Riverwalk almost every morning. Our grandchildren learned to ride bikes there. It joins the White Pine Trail so that extension bicycling or longer walks can use both trails. In the spring it is alive with wildflowers and in fall the colors are amazing.

Great place to get away along the river. Beautiful scenery. I've taken many long walks along this pathway. Worth the effort.

Saw signs so we stopped to walk off our lunch. Nice views up and down the river. Worth a few minutes.

The Art Festival offered many different and unique art presentations for all to enjoy. The location is along the river banks. Nice shady areas to rest in between shopping. Just a block or two from town and with in walking distance. Great area for family gatherings too. Nice big pavilion with tables.

You can get away without going far. The dog likes to come along and is welcome (on leash of course)..

This is a very nice park, easily accessible with ample parking. The trail is mostly paved, some gravel and some boardwalk. A nice place to stretch the legs, without a lot of physical intensity.

I lived in Big Rapids earlier in my life, long before the city realized the treasure it had available along the Muskegon River. Moving back to the area to find the Riverwalk, the Band Shell, and all the available city parks was a lovely surprise. Thanks to all for the hard work it took to make the Riverwalk area available...

Nice trail that takes you along the banks of the river, nice condition, would be able to push wheelchair on the trail. A little difficult finding, it you see a sign that says " River Walk ahead, trail is to the left of the sign.

The entrance at Trestle Bend Park can be a little tricky to find. Just walk down past the playground equipment. Beautiful walk with great woods and river views.
